Another Obama crony on his way to the Big House

October 31, 2008

Government does not get much more corrupt than in Obama’s home state of Illinois. Democrat Governor Rod Blagojevich, a close ally of Obama, was elected on a promise to clean up the corruption, but how does one get rid of corruption when Democrats have control of the Illinois House, Senate and all but one statewide office?

Blagojevich is under investigation for a number of, shall we say, suspect campaign and business dealings. The most notable of these is Blagojevich’s close association with one Antonin “Tony” Rezko, who has been indicted for his part in a scheme to obtain kickbacks from the state. Blagojevich’s wife, Patricia, was a real estate business partner with Rezko for more than a decade. In Rezko’s trial, it was revealed that 75 percent of those who gave more than $25,000 to Blagojevich’s campaign received state contracts or appointments to state boards. Rezko was also indicted in January on charges of money laundering for an Iraqi billionaire, Nadhmi Auchi, whom military analysts describe as one of Saddam’s bagmen.

Rezko’s fingerprints are all over Obama’s political campaigns. He was Obama’s Chicago fundraising patriarch, a “fixer.” Rezko and his bagmen donated more than $225,000 to Obama’s campaigns.

Rezko’s fingerprints also adorn Obama’s 2005 purchase of his swanky Georgian mansion on Chicago’s south side—right down the street from where Obama’s new neighbor, terrorist William Ayers, launched Obama’s political career. (We know, given Obama’s rhetoric, he must have lived in a government housing project and commuted by mass transit.) That mansion and the adjacent lot were originally one parcel, but the owner divided it into two, and the adjacent lot was purchased by Rezko for the full $625,000 asking price—far above market value. On the same day, Obama purchased his mansion on the first lot for well under market value. One might conclude that Rezko subsidized Obama’s discount with the purchase of the adjacent lot but Rezko conveniently holds a receipt for a “loan” from his Iraqi friend, Auchi.

Who will be next? Governor Rod Blagojevich? Perhaps Mayor Daley? One can only hope!

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October 31, 2008

The forces of misandry have spread their doctrine of hatred like a metastatic cancer. Thoroughly trouncing the Constitution in the process. Nearly every day we hear about “abuses” at Gitmo. But, I ask, what about those same things that have been going on right here in America for years? How is it that the American people have stood by while these forces of hatred have imposed de facto sexist ex post facto law? This immoral law has been used as a stepping stone toward passing other laws that restrict, or deny rights to people based upon such trivial things as not paying parking tickets. Hence the need to once again post about this deadly threat to the American way of life.

A report put out by RADAR (Respecting Accuracy in Domestic Abuse Reporting) entitled “An Epidemic of Civil Rights Abuses: Ranking of States’ Domestic Violence Laws” ranks New Jersey’s domestic violence statute as one of the laws “most likely to violate the civil rights of persons accused of domestic violence.” Nevertheless, New Jersey’s statute is not an anomaly, as a review of the report and another RADAR report, “Perverse Incentives, False Allegations, and Forgotten Children“, reveals. Political scientist Stephen Baskerville’s online report “Family Violence in America: The Truth about Domestic Violence and Child Abuse” makes it clear that false allegations of domestic violence and the legal system that rewards them is not only a national problem, but an international one as well. His book, Taken Into Custody: The War Against Fathers, Marriage, and the Family, confirms this. Just released by Cumberland House, it cites as an example of the national problem a shocking statistic put out by the Department of Justice: “a restraining order is issued every two minutes in Massachusetts.”

Big Media probably won’t report on the problem anytime soon. It’s therefore up to bloggers, podcasters, and You Tubers to expose the due process fiasco that media silence has allowed to persist.

Read the full story here: Gitmo at Home

While that article deals primarily with New Jersey virtually every state as a mirror system that specializes in the destruction of lives based upon political correctness and misandry. Not to mention prosecutors that care little for what is right or wrong. Indeed, they only care about getting another feather for their war bonnet.

Domestic violence is a real problem. The taking of civil rights for less than felonious behavior by omnipotent government agencies is a tragedy( If not outright treason.). If these people are so evil, then why were they not tried as felons? Why turn Anglo American law on it’s head by allowing for the rules and penalties to be changed after the fact. Why allow felons to be allowed to have their rights restored, but not misdemeanor or even people convicted of infractions? This situation is about hate, power, and political correctness. Not about wife beating or any of the other red herrings that get infused into the issue.

A Day at the Range … cont.

Diane’s new rifle: She is sixteen years old and recently took the Hunter Safety Course after deciding that if all the boys were out hunting that is where she wanted to be. After all, she makes a habit of showing up the boys at their own game. Her mother thinks it is more like “she wants to be around the boys…” In any case I passed some pleasantries with her mother while everyone was getting set up. I learned that Diane’s father had been killed in an accident when she was twelve, and that her mother worked as a waitress. That she had looked for an inexpensive rifle for her daughter, and that a friend had given Diane an old scope for her new rifle. It was a Burris 3 X 9, and appeared to still be in very good condition. I personally know those scopes to be among the best that are made, anywhere, at any price. Her rifle? It was a Mossberg ATR 100 chambered in 270 Winchester. Her ammunition was Remington Core-Lokt 130 grain. This, friends, is a hunting set up on the cheap. Other than the scope this is, well, to be honest, a Wal-Mart set up front to rear. Thank God these folks have friends… Jim’s Grandfather (see above story) offered to give it a once over, and they took the offer. He swabbed out the barrel removing a lot of shipping / storage gunk, and cleaned off the bolt, a tiny squirt of Rem Oil down the trigger group, and she was ready to go! Folks, after what I went through with an early production 835 I am not a big Mossberg fan, to say the least! So, what happened went Diane got to shooting? I had yet another experience in crow pie eating. I am beginning to think that I am an expert of such fare… Diane shot five strings of three rounds each. Results? The last two strings were both on the eight, and roughly three quarters of an inch… This entire set up cost less than three hundred dollars. Go figure! I have to believe that with more practice and refinement Diane will, in fact, be showing up most of the boys!

Wishful thinking or conspiracy..?

October 30, 2008

One of the hottest stories in the world of blogging right now is the lawsuit concerning Barack Obama’s citizenship.While intriguing I have to believe that this issue comes from the Tin Foil Hat Brigade Anyone that reads this blog knows that I am no supporter of Obama. Further, that an Obama win could very well split this nation to the point of an actual civil war. Not to mention that a loss will lead to widespread rioting. We are in for a rough ride irrespective of who wins the election.

Then again, the popular election notwithstanding, we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic thank God! With a Bill of Rights that protects minorities from the majority.

Is, or has the United States ever been perfect? Of course not. This nation was, and is, a dynamic experiment in self governance. We do not have a King, although Chicago appears to have an aristocracy. We do not seek via government to impose religion upon the people by force of arms, although that has occurred in our past, and to a degree still do. Current laws seek to legislate morality in the conduct of religion. Least we not forget what happened at Waco.

Then we have the issue of effectively being able to defend ones self, family, and community. can you say gun control..? I knew you could!

So, after Obama is enthroned, what brand of tin foil should I make my hat from, so that I get the best reception for such mundane ideas as Liberty and Freedom..?


Political Infomercials

October 30, 2008

I hope and yes, even pray that political infomercials do not become a regular part of American politics. Indeed, political discussion is one thing. What happened last evening was an overdose that simply went way to far IMO.

Enough is enough for God’s sake!

Damascus is mad at us now… Golly gee!

October 29, 2008

Seems that American  Spec Ops troops went after an Al Qaeda operative responsible for smuggling terrorist’s into Iraq that was using Syria as a safe haven. Go figure..? Syria has been repeatedly warned that this was going to happen if they didn’t put a stop to it. Now they are crying about it when it did. Even going so far as to demand an apology. Other sources tell a different story though. In fact, they say that the bad guy is now in the loving hands of a martyr’s virgins.

If, I ask, this raid was not effective, then why is Iran all freaked out? Brave words there General. Just remember that when the camel dung hits the rotating oscillating water wheel: [if you]

Mess with the best, die like the rest!

This PSA is brought to the people of Iran and Syria in the hope that they take responsibility for their homelands, and get new leadership by whatever means are necessary.

Hat Tip to Fred!

A day at the range, new rifles…

October 29, 2008

The other day I meandered out to the local rifle range. There were four people there with brand new rifles that ran the gamut from very low cost entry level rifles, to the latest issue of “The Rifleman’s Rifle.”

Let’s start with Jim and his very first big game rifle. Jim is fourteen years old, and has been shooting rim fire competition for several years with the Junior NRA. His rifle was a gift from his grandfather after he had earned the rank of Second Bar Sharpshooter. The rifle? A Remington model 700 ADL chambered in 243 Winchester a proved deer and Pronghorn caliber. It was topped with the excellent Sightron SII 3 X 9 scope. His grandfather was there and told me that he had lapped the barrel, action, and rings. He is a gunsmith and gone through the rifle completely before giving it to Jim. Bearing in mind that his grandfather purchased the entire set up at wholesale and that there were no labor charges involved the cost was estimated at just over $900. That, is quite a savings! The ammunition being used that day was Federal one hundred grain soft point. A proved yet economical deer stopper. Grandpa used his laser bore sight, not only on Jim’s rifle, but on all that were tested. I have to believe that helped save a lot of money!

Jim shot from the bench with the rifle resting on sand bags, the target at one hundred yards. He shot strings of five rounds, and the barrel was swabbed with Hoppe’s Elite between each string. The results were astounding, at least to me they were. The first group was roughly one and a half inches, centered on the seven ring at five o’clock. As noted the barrel was swabbed, and adjustments to the scope were made. String number two was centered on the nine ring at six o’clock and measured just under one inch. Another swab job, and scope adjustment and it was on to string three. That Jim was settling in and getting the feel of his new rifle was pretty apparent. String three was dead on the “X” and measured less than three quarters of an inch! This was not using match ammo, as noted above! Both myself and grandpa are advocates of the “zero point aiming” theory, and he adjusted the scope accordingly. Jim was instructed to hold at six o’clock, and the fourth string was fired. Yet another swab job, and string five was fired down range. We walked out to the target (It was not changed between string four and five.) Everyone was more than a bit impressed. All ten rounds grouped together, and were covered by a dime! I can only foresee better things for Jim and his new rifle as the barrel further breaks in, and he builds even more confidence.

Tomorrow we will cover Diane’s new rifle.

‘ACORN USES PUBLIC FUNDS TO STEAL ELECTIONS, KNOW YOUR GUN RIGHTS,’ SAYS SAF

October 28, 2008

BELLEVUE, WA – ACORN, the publicly-funded national organization linked to voter fraud in several states is now actively interfering with the exercise of firearm civil rights in New Jersey, and the Second Amendment Foundation is calling for an immediate federal investigation.

“ACORN has, since 1998, received an estimated $31 million in government funding,” said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb. “Now they have intervened in a New Jersey gun rights case in defense of an illegal Jersey City one-gun-a-month ordinance that violates the state preemption statute.

“For the past few election cycles,” Gottlieb noted, “ACORN has clearly grown more partisan toward the political Left. ACORN’S PAC has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for president. That’s hardly surprising since he used to serve as their legal counsel and he taught the group about community organizing. ACORN and Obama are lockstep in seeking to destroy our Second Amendment rights.

“The organization is currently under FBI investigation over allegations of voter fraud in several states,” he added. “Bad enough that ACORN is implicated in fraudulent activities in several states, but now an ACORN chapter in the Garden State is working against the ability of New Jersey gun owners to exercise a constitutionally-protected individual civil right to own a handgun.

“It is an outrage that this group has intervened to defend an anti-gun ordinance that has already been declared illegal by the court,” he observed. “So long as ACORN accepts one penny of public funding, the organization should remain absolutely neutral on social issues, political campaigns and especially legal actions defending the right to keep and bear arms.

“We call upon the FBI to expand the scope of its ACORN investigation and focus on the group’s involvement in the Jersey City case,” Gottlieb stated. “We support Ohio Congressman John Boehner’s request that the White House immediately block all federal funding of ACORN activities until this group’s questionable activities are fully investigated. We want to know how they are paying for attorneys, and why Seton Hall’s Center for Social Justice and the Public Interest Law Center are providing legal assistance to ACORN for this effort.

“This is still the United States, not a socialist gulag” Gottlieb concluded. “Public money should not be given to private organizations which then turn around and utilize that funding to usurp the electoral process and erode constitutionally-guaranteed civil rights.”

If you ever run for office, don’t do this:

October 28, 2008

I received this from Senator Greg Brophy. It’s a laugh, but it is serious… kind of a gotcha!

In the middle of the campaign season, while everyone is tired of the ads and ready for this to just be over, this came to me and I just have to share.

You need a little background information first. I helped a candidate for state senate, Don Ytterberg, put together a comparison piece that shows some votes made by his opponent, Dan Gibbs, that Don thinks are out of line with the people that live in SD16. Two of the votes were amendments to bills that Gibbs ultimately voted for after voting against the key amendments. The first amendment is known as Jessica’s Law, which puts sexual predators away for a minimum of 25 years (something that 99.9% of America thinks is a good idea). Dan Gibbs voted against that amendment on 5-1-2007. The second amendment is one that I ran to mandate a $50,000 bond on illegal alien drug dealers so that they won’t just skip the country when they are released. Gibbs voted against that one last session and then ultimately voted for the final bill. During a televised radio interview, Gibbs brings up the negative mailer (comparison piece) and tries to show that it is inaccurate. Big mistake because Ytterberg has the votes in his briefcase.

You also need to know that the Colorado General Assembly has rules on amendments to bills that say the amendment has to relate to the bill. In this case, I’m not writing about an appropriations Christmas tree project like you see in Washington D.C. I’m talking about crime bills that were being discussed and debated on the floor of the House and the floor of the Senate. Both of the amendments narrowly lost, so every voted mattered.

If you ever run for office, don’t do this:

CAUGHT!

Obama, and socialism… Tape located

October 28, 2008

The more Obama tries to cover his tracks, the more apparent his totalitarian goals become exposed.

“We now have Obama on tape saying the Constitution is this country’s problem and stating that socialism, beginning with the federally enforced redistribution of wealth from those who have to those who have less, are his core philosophies. What the hell have I been telling you for more than a year now?”
Gunny Bob 850 KOA
Strong work Marine!
What was found
Then we have his ideas about the Constitution.
I myself am pretty fed up with the people that think Obama is no threat to our way of life.
